Sony RX100 MKIII review part I

One of the most fun things to do is test new cameras, and although the RX100 MKIII has been on the market for some months it never caught my eye. Let me first explain why…


I’m very happy with my Sony A7r, in fact it’s the best camera I ever used, it’s small and it delivers a stunning quality. However there are always situations where you don’t want to bring a camera but you do want to take pictures sometimes, normally I will use my iPhone and although the images are great (for a phone) it’s exactly as I said, they are ok for a phone….. And yeah I know there are some amazing shots online made by iPhones and I can pull that off too… if the situation is 100% right, but in most cases it simply is not the case, so you will need a “little” bit more power. Because the last few months we’ve been traveling around a lot the idea of a small iPhone alternative camera grew and grew and during Photokina I did start “shopping around”. I always loved the Fuji cameras so the X30 would have been a good option, however I’m also very much in love with the dynamic range and looks of the Sony cameras and thats when I found the RX100 MKIII, of course I knew they were there but I never held one, and it was a bit of a shock to see how small they are….

Roof top New York by night

During the first day of the Ultimate workshop weekend we ended up on the roof in the evening to shoot some sunset/night shots.
And let’s be honest with a view like this…. who can resist.

Results workshop NY part I

August 29-30-31 I taught an ultimate weekend workshop in New York at the studio from our friend Hector, 5th Floor.
An awesome location with loads of space and an amazing overview of New York.


The weekend was divided into several segments.
The first day it was mostly me explaining techniques, showing setups and letting the attendees shoot several shots per setup, during the evening we did some cool sunset and nightshots of New York, which I will share later.


The second day it was the time for the attendees to shoot, I switched between the groups to assist and help out with ideas, this day was ended with a nice BBQ on the roof.


Workflow and retouching was explained on Day 3, including a complete headshot session for each attendee.
The ultimate weekend workshops are exactly what they say, it’s the ultimate learning experience and to be honest it’s very intense for both me and the attendees but it’s so much worth it when hearing the responses and seeing the results. And with that being said…. here are some of my results.


We started out with showing the difference between natural light and strobes, explaining metering techniques and of course some information about coaching the model.
